Default Re: Are AF11*'s repairable?

I'm impressed and not a little embarrassed as I've tried getting into these things with a drill before now, never even thinking about using heat.

My method would certainly have wrecked the junctions but even if I end up fitting an AF127/125/239 etc. I will do it this way in future, then there's absolutely nothing to lose and possibly a transistor to preserve.

As Paul said earlier, much better than the drill!
